impact just because paul ryan and joe biden are very aggressive debaters. we are going to see vice president biden go after paul ryan for the ryan budget that has been a big deal on capitol hill in the last four years. paul ryan will certainly defend his views on this. we will probably see some more sparks than in the first debate. >>shepard: one thing that governor romney has been criticized from both sides of the aisle, he didn't have specifics on a budget plan, and in came paul ryan as a vice presidential candidate, and the word was, well, not all of those specifics. it seems like they will have to put a laser on that. >>guest: that is what palm ryan will -- what paul ryan will do. but he is broad in his thinking and they don't not want him to get specific. that is what biden will push on. paul ryan may not have those answers. >>shepard: time will tell, the day after tomorrow. today, sandusky learned his punishment for raping little boys but first he had a chance to speak to the court. he reminded us what you need to do is blame the victims. because it is their fault, after all.

is hitting romney and ryan on women's health issues, specifically on the issue of abortion. the republican platform that would deny abortion in cases of rape on incest. that is not necessarily romney's position, but an issue like the economy in which the country has to go forward rather than back. >> when it comes to a woman's right to make her own health care choices, they want to take us back to the policies of the 1950s. this election is your chance to make sure that doesn't happen, virginia. that decisions that affect a woman's health aren't up to politicians. they are not up to insurance companies. they are up to you. >>reporter: the president is counting on the stronger support he gets from women generally to offset romney's stronger support particularly among white males. >>trace: thank you, wendell, following the president in cleveland. governor romney says the 7.8 percent unemployment rate does not tell the whole story. here is what the g.o.p. nominee told supporters in virginia today. >> the reason it has come down this year is primarily because of the fact that more and more peo
